A collection of china from the White House is to feature in RR Auction's sale of presidential memorabilia, which will be offered online between September 11-17.
Included is a bowl from the administration of Thomas Jefferson (made in around 1790), which is offered with a minimum bid of $3,000.
Some, but not all, administrations order a new service when they come to power. Examples from the past are stored in the White House china room.
The lots include pieces that span the history of the United States, from a Bill Clinton fish entree dinner plate to an Abraham Lincoln dessert plate.
The sale will also include a watch belonging to Eisenhower and one of FDR's walking canes.
